On Friday afternoon in northwestern Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army’s 154th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Hezbollah, and several Iraqi paramilitary units – continued their steady advance around the predominately Shi’i towns of Al-Zahra and Nubl, seizing a number of sites from the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah.

Hezbollah and company began their assault on Friday morning when they struck Jabhat Al-Nusra’s defensive positions at Duhrat Al-Qur’ah and Dahrat Al-Qundilah, capturing these two hilltops located north of Tannourah after a short battle.

Following the capture of Duhrat Al-Qu’rah and Dahrat Qundilah, Hezbollah and their allies launched a quick assault on the Tannourah Quarries, killing several enemy combatants before establishing full control of this site in the Mount Simeon area of western Aleppo.

With the quarries and the hilltops surrounding Tannourah under their control, Hezbollah and their allies advanced to the village, where they entered and seized the entire north district before nightfall on Friday evening.

Besides the good news about entering Mount Simeon for the first time in three and a half years, the Syrian Armed Forces were also able impose fire control over Bayyanoun, leaving the Islamist rebels with only one route to retreat from this aforementioned village.

He will need a very large army of soldiers and weapons to do that.
